Director Statement

I cherish the opportunity to create and grow with a character as a writer and actor. As an artist my approach is to be a canvas to which a character can emerge. As a director I seek to bring diverse characters to life in genres that are often lacking strong survivable characters of color. Often in Hollywood one hears "don't just wait for work but make it," and that's what I did with my film 'Bye Bye Bastard.' It is an opportunity to tell a painful, but serious, horror story from a different perspective. In addition, I have always felt that the paranormal/ horror genre has yet to reach its full potential. New generations want sincere stories told before diving into the pool of absurd. For this reason my characters are serious, and come from relatable perspectives. Once an audience can relate, then I can take them on the journey toward the Macabre and beyond.
